The Permitting of Desalination Facilities: A Sustainability Perspective

Abstract

Desalination provides a partial solution to water scarcity. While the desalination process provides much needed water to coastal areas, it also has various environmental impacts. Older operations entrain and impinge large and small organisms during the collection process, use significant amounts of energy, and produce substantial volumes of waste brine. These short- and long-term impacts warrant the involvement of environmental health practitioners.

SepticSmart Week

NEHA is raising awareness for SepticSmart Week from September 17 - 21, 2018, alongside the U.S. EPA. 

SepticSmart Week is focused on getting homeowners and communities to care for and maintain their septic systems. If you or your community is trying to find a credible waste water system installer, look no further than the NEHA CIOWTS credential holder list.

Through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), NEHA has worked with various partner groups to develop a national credential to certify installers of onsite wastewater treatment systems. The credential covers all forms of installation and will be offered at both a basic and advanced levels.

NEHA offers extensive information on wastewater and septic systems as well as provides educational resources for those interested in learning more.
